This diary entry is part 9 of 28 in Lily's diary dated 25 - July 2023

Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

And I screwed up!!!  But maybe I didn’t!!!  I don’t know!!!

So you know how Sabby reads this diary?  She read what I wrote about Crystal last night (which wasn’t anything really bad) and then she called Crystal’s parents and told them, and…  well…  her “boyfriend” is old.

I mean, really old.

Like, Dave old.

She’s fifteen.

Ummm…   I feel bad.  I didn’t mean to get her in trouble.  But… she kind of got herself in trouble.  So apparently they’re grilling her pretty hard to find out if he did anything that would need, well… police.  But that’s the kind of secret that shouldn’t be kept, right?


Crystal’s kind of mad at me.  But she’s a lot less mad at me than I’d have expected her to be.  She texted me and cussed and swore a little and told me I betrayed her…  but then she said “thank you” and I haven’t heard from her since.


I keep forgetting that people I know actually read this.  That’s my bad.  But how can I tell you my story if I don’t tell you what’s happening?  I don’t know.  I don’t know how to answer that.  Especially when I don’t know what’s going to cause trouble!  I didn’t know what kind of trouble that would cause!!!

Crystal’s a good girl that’s been dealt a very bad hand.  Remember last year when she tried to… what do they call it now…. unalive herself?  She failed, thankfully, and she got help, but she’s still got issues and I’m not sure if she’ll ever entirely resolve them.  And I don’t know what to do to help.  I wish Crystal knew we’re all on her side.  Even her parents.  They seem like okay people who’ve had some really hard times and maybe made some bad decisions.  But they want what’s best for her too.  They still blame themselves for what happened to Crystal at the shelter.  And… and maybe they should.  But you can’t change the past.  You can only move on.  And Crystal will have to live with it for the rest of her life.

She doesn’t seem to resent them, though.  Would I?  Maybe.  Maybe I would.

I’m not sure she’ll be coming over for a while.  If not because she won’t want to see me, because she’ll probably be grounded until she’s her “boyfriend”‘s age.


I mean, Dave’s nice, but someone his age?  Eww.

That’d be like me and that “Texan Tinkerer” guy.  He’s smart and nice and has always treated me well, but…  but EWWW.

Oh well.  It’ll blow over.  Or it won’t.  What’s done is done and hopefully it will turn out for the best.

Love you all!!! ❤

Even you Crystal!  Don’t hate me forever!!!
